Summer Graduation Will Also Be Virtual

Teresa Schuster/ Staff Writer

Summer graduation will be held virtually at 2 p.m. on August 2, according to an email FIU President Mark Rosenberg sent to the student body on Friday. Graduates will be able to access the ceremony anytime afterward.

The commencement ceremony will be similar to May’s, where 6,000 students graduated, according to Rosenberg. It will feature personalized slides to honor graduates’ achievements and remarks from Rosenberg and deans at FIU.

“Our goal is to give our Summer graduates an even more memorable Panther commencement experience,” said Rosenberg in the email.

New features include commencement toolkits with social media filters, yard signs, and contests for graduating students. FIU may also hold a campus caravan for students to participate in.

Spring and Summer graduates will have the option to walk in a traditional ceremony once they are resumed, and can take a photo with Rosenberg.

Graduates will be sent further details about the ceremony in the coming days.
